Social Impact

We build a Pre and Primary school in Manyire village (close to Arusha) which offers day and boarding school.
We have 150 day students and 50 boarding students.
We offer jobs to our local community and fully sponsor 30 % of our students.
We set up a primary school like no other primary school in Tanzania where we offer quality education.
Next to the Tanzanian curriculum we enrich this curriculum with a broad spectrum of co curricular activities like French lessons, ICT lessons, Arts lessons, Music lessons, gardening lessons, sport lessons (even hockey and tennis), dance lessons and much more. 
We started building the school in  2010 and now more than 10 years later we have accomplished our dream to be among of the best schools in Tanzania. We have grown very much each year by extending the classes, building dormitories, an administration block, a garage, a Volunteer house, a library etc.
Our STD. 7 students graduated already twice from Dinka School and we are proud to say they are the leading academic students in their Secondary schools at the moment.
